Odds and Ends



My optical shop is next to the laundry en my house. I used to heat laps for warm pressing by holdig them under the hot water tap until they softened. However the not water system is on a controled supply and with my wife doing the washing of a morning the hot water is all used up. I sometimes have to boil a jug of water. I find this inconvenient. So I made a lap heater using a heat lamp. This is illustrated below. It has one advantage in that I don t burn my hand as when holding the lap under a hot water tap.
